getBrowser is a jQuery plugin used to detect and determine the version of web browser using user agent. Similar to the deprecated jQuery.browser method. Supported browsers: webkit (chrome), opera, msie and mozilla firefox.

How to use it:

1. Add both jQuery library and the jQuery getBrowser plugin into the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="getBrowser.js"></script>

2. Use this plugin to display a warning dialog when the MSIE version is less than 9.

if(jQuery.browser.msie && jQuery.browser.version < 9){
  alert('Why did you do this? Don not use IE.');
}

3. Output the current version of the browser's rendering engine.

$( "body" ).html( "The version # of the browser's rendering engine is: <span>" +
  $.browser.name + "</span>" + "<span> " + $.browser.version + "</span>" );
